JOY

“Dear” and “darling” are very common words to greet those you know, even if you are not close friends: in a shop, at the hairdresser’s, at the bakery. If you are having a bad day, don’t worry: there is always someone who makes you smile with a joke or a nice word.

FUN

There is always something to do. An event, an exhibition, a concert, a theatre, a special evening in a club, a new restaurant to try: in Rome you do not risk getting bored. Never!

DISCOVERY

From Rome you can reach many beautiful places: it is close to the sea, the lakes and the mountains. In addition to the surroundings of the city and the many cities of Lazio,  you can choose Abruzzo, Tuscany, Umbria and Campania for your trips. Florence, Milan and Bologna are easily reachable by train. You only have to decide where to go!

WEATHER

The weather is truly enviable. Winter is usually mild, spring is a triumph of colors and scents, autumn is a bit cooler than summer and summer is very hot, but you can go to the beach or choose one of the many pools open in the city. The sun often shines so bright and Rome with the sun is wonderful!

CHOICE

There are so many shops to choose from for shopping: there are deals on every corner. From the most popular brands to craft shops. And the choice also concerns food: starred restaurants, but also traditional restaurants, pubs, street food and pizzerias. Every desire can be easily satisfied.

Ponte Milvio

It’s probably the most romantic bridge in the city: Ponte Milvio used to be full of padlocks with love promises written on them. Kiss each other while looking at the fantastic view on the river Tiber: it will be unforgettable. You can spend the rest of the night at one of the bars and restaurants all around the area, which are really nice.
